The Dreamhouse feels more like a friendly village than a B&B as it rambles from one room to the next or down to one of two pools and the bar area. The views across the valley and down to Hout bay are magnificent but your room choice does have a big impact on how much you get to enjoy them....

Dreamhouse is a very appropriate name, because the stunning views make this guesthouse a real dream location. The friendly and helpful staff made our stay very memorable. Our room was clean and well equipped, and the Amarula Cream on our last night was a nice gesture.

Dreamhouse B&B is an outstanding facility. Located in the picturesque town of Hout Bay they offer beautiful rooms, most of them with views of the mountain. The staff was friendly, helpful and very professional and went out of their way to assist and give information about the area. The freshly made breakfast was amazing! I have one regret - I...

Stayed at the Dreamhouse for 4 nights with my wife. Despite some inclement weather we had an enjoyable stay. The views of Hout bay and the mountains are amazing. The white room was a little tired and is scheduled to be refurbished shortly which will I am sure would have raised my rating to excellent. During summer the outside area...
